My new career focus...

Over the last 18 months since I left my job at LogicMaze I have kinda been bouncing around trying to figure out what I really wanted to bear down and focus on.

I have spent some time consulting, launching 2 radio shows, taught college classes, working in schools, and most importantly trying to be the best Dad and Husband and Son and friend I could be. I'm not sure I have been a success at any of them but I can say I'm (for the most part) proud of my efforts.



The speaking/presenting stuff is slowly moving itself to the forefront of what I think I want to do more of. I am going to continue to do all of the above in some capacity... but some will be less as I truly see if I have what it takes to be come a professional speaker/presenter and actually make a career of it.

Over the last 6 years I have spoken to hundreds of groups...

Dozens of individual businesses and corporations...
Random fans of social media...
School Superintendent Associations...
Dozens of different State and Regional level business associations...
Public School Teachers..
College Professors Associations...
Retirement Home Employees...
Law Enforcement Agencies...
Chambers of Commerce...
The list goes on.. maybe I should develop a niche... maybe not, I don't know.

I speak about communications and about how things have changed in how corporations, organizations, schools... anyone really, gets the word out to the public, how they spread their message. I try hard to not be a fluffy speaker who doesn't really offer ideas or solutions. I want people to walk out after one of my presentations and feel not only inspired, but have a plan as well... inspiration is only so good if you don't have plan. Inspiration is worthless without follow-up execution.

Anyhow, I don't know why I am telling you this, other than in the past if I having written things out in public like this, I tend to follow through more. I guess this blog post is just to peer pressure myself to actually follow through and see if I can do this.

Stay tuned...
